Freiburg, Germany – 10 May 2022 – Avnet Embedded has held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the commencement of a new multi-million-euro manufacturing site in Europe. This expanded manufacturing capacity, (located at Breisgau Industrial Park in Eschbach near Freiburg, Germany), will focus on industrial electronic systems and is a direct response to a significant growth in global demand for innovative embedded solutions.
The completion of the build and move to Eschbach is scheduled for early 2023. The new campus will be home to 8,000m2 of manufacturing space, 7,200 m2 of warehousing space and 3,000 m2 of office and recreational space with parking. Employees and visitors will be able to take advantage of extensive green spaces and grounds. Compared to the current facility in Freiburg, Eschbach will have about twice as much manufacturing space connected to a large logistics space.
